Default '60 Back Up Lights Mystery

I have seen this before, but perhaps many of your have not. This comes from Nyles ~ Tbird1044. It is on the Automotive Mile Posts website, one that I often refer to when I am doing research on Tbirds, or other cars, for that matter. Here is the link to this article.

Interesting article about the 60 T-Bird back-up lights.

I bought my first Squarebird in 1967 when I was in the Army stationed at Fort Gordon, GA.

It was a 1960 and it had back-up lights which you can see in the photo.

It also had a standard transmission, 3-speed on the column which, in retrospect, turned out to be a rare option.

Unfortunately, within a year after I brought it back home to NY, it became a rust bucket and I had to junk it.

I love it...


Drum brakes, bias ply tires and a trailer hitch! Back then, there wasn't anything wrong with this setup. Just looking at it now, makes my skin crawl. - Dave
